Hi Alun,
 
I'm hearing nothing but praise for the evening and your performance - it was great to see so many people dancing and enjoying the music.
It's a bit of a craft to read an audience and get them up on their feet so you guys deserve a lot of credit!
We will definitely keep you in mind for future events.
 
Hope you have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Paul Chapman - Corporate Function: Portland House, Cardiff, Fri 14 December 2018

 

Hi Alun

We had an amazing wedding and you guys were fantastic. Your set provided a fitting climax to the best day of our lives. Particular thanks for your patience during the power cut! We really enjoyed your drummer joining in with our guests during their 'sing-song' acapela rendition of Hey Jude while the lights were out.
Hope to see Graffiti play again somewhere soon.
 
Many thanks

Hi Alun

Thank you to you and the rest of the guys for coming to play at our fire fighters charity event, it was a great evening and we raised lots of money. I had lots of feedback saying how good Graffiti were and we especially enjoyed your Insomnia medley. My wife has seen the video you have posted on your Facebook page and we have all had a good laugh at our merry antics. We will certainly consider you again for next year and we be in touch once a date is confirmed. It was great to meet you all and maybe we will get back to Cardiff to see you play again later in the year.

Hi Alun,

Brilliant gig tonight guys. Thanks for letting me join you on stage to take some fantastic photos! I'm thankful you were happy for me to be there along side you  
and I appreciate that massively, as you gave me the opportunity to practice my craft, whilst having the pleasure of watching you perform live. 
I'll edit the photos for you and I hope you also love them, because I do!

Hi Alun

Adele - Birthday Party, Maesteg Golf Club, Fri 13 October 2017

 

Hi Alun,
 
We need to thank you. What a fantastic night!
I've done a little feedback paragraph for you below and hopefully we will see you at some future events.
 
“We booked Graffiti after they played a friends wedding a few years ago. They genuinely made the evening of our wedding one of the best nights we will ever have. From expertly learning our first song to ensuring that the entire wedding party were on the dance floor all night - there were no negatives whatsoever. Everyone at the wedding commented how great they were and the demand for an encore was huge. The bar was empty all night because people could not stop dancing. We could not have asked for anything more so thank you so much”.
 
Thanks again,

From Soul Suite's Facebook page:

Last night the SOUL SUITE played host to another great band - GRAFFITI. They did a great job on entertaining you lovely people with a great selection of songs that kept you dancing all night. Not the result that we were looking for in the rugby but it didn’t dampen the mood at the club as all you 'Soul Suiters' were still up for a party! A Big thank you to Alun and the boys on a fab job. hopefully we will see you back at the club very very soon.

Simon Wilce - The Soul Suite, Pontypridd, Sat 25 February 2017

Hi Alun,

Alun,

Heather and I would like to say a huge thank you to you and Graffiti for another fantastic performance on Saturday. Everybody commented that they were looking forward to seeing you again after the engagement party and people who missed that were extremely impressed by how good you guys were. Thank you so much for performing Treasure by Bruno Mars as our first dance; it was excellent and has created a lasting memory for us. Best of luck for the future, we may catch a performance of yours sometime at Live Lounge when we are in Cardiff.

Hi Alun,

I watched your band last night at The Live Lounge and wanted to say it was a privilege. Your musicianship (and the sound guy) was absolutely awesome. I've watched 1000's of bands from across the world in my line of work and the 10 of us had the best night! Thank you!

Hi Alun,

 
Just a quick note to say thanks for a great night Saturday, I know Rich thanked you on the night but we both really enjoyed the music, as did everyone else.  You played a great selection of songs.
 
Hope to see you all again in the not too distant future, we will certainly pass on our recommendations to use Graffiti
 
Thanks again

Sue

Hi Alun,

 

A big thank you to you and the lads. You put on a great performance. I've had lots of feedback saying how good the band was....here is a couple posted on Facebook by the Reading crowd:

"Welsh covers band Graffiti just did Insomnia. I'm in heaven".  "I will say it again. Insomnia - the dance track. By a live band in their 40's. It was brilliant".

You played a great mix and I personally enjoyed every single song. I wished you could have played longer.

I will certainly keep Graffiti in mind for the wedding in Windsor next Oct 2014.

Phil Perks - Engagement Party, Llandaff Rowing Club, Cardiff.                     Sat 2nd November 2013

 

Hi Alun,

Thanks for your band's contact details, it was a little difficult to talk on Friday, but basically we have need from time to time to have a decent band at Holiday Inn and one that can play and tailor to an audience. I am pretty sure from hearing you on Friday at Live Lounge, you would have no issues with that!

The music you played was fantastic. I was showing a mate around town who is thinking of moving here from London and we were both really impressed!

 

Richard Platts - Manager, Holiday Inn, Cardiff at Live Lounge Fri 12th July 2013

 

  

Hi Alun,

Many thanks for appearing at 'Music in the Park' at Penarth Festival. You guys were fantastic! Great song choices too.

Andrew Wigford - Music in the Park organiser:- Belle Vue Park  Penarth, Sun 14th July 2013

 

Hi Alun,

I am just sending a quick email to thank you for playing at our wedding!
We had a brilliant evening thanks to Graffiti. Loads of people have asked us for more information and are keeping you in mind for up coming events.
Cant thank you all enough!
 
Alex & Luke - Wedding:- Llangoed Hall, Sat 24th March 2012

 

 

We chose Graffiti as our wedding band after searching the internet for months. After doing some research on the band, I quickly realised that these guys were popular in many reputable bars in South Wales.

Due to other commitments we were unable to meet with the band prior to our day, but we had many conversations with them and were put totally at ease around the arrangements for the day. The band were totally flexible around our requirements, communicated well with us, were punctual and most of all as a bride, filled me with confidence that everything would be great on the day.

We would definitely recommend Graffiti - and so would our guests! (dance floor full all night!)

Lisa and Andrew - Wedding:- New House Country Hotel, Sat 9th July 2011

 

To Alun and the rest of the band

Thank you very much for playing at our wedding in February. We had a fantastic day and you helped make the day truly memorable for us and all our guests.

Thanks and best wishes.

It was a top night fellas - always impressed by the lady GaGa number - though don't get carried away and wear a raw meat outfit for the next gig!

Jon Lee – O’Neills, Cardiff 28th Jan 2011

 

Hi Alun,

I thought your band was fantastic. The range of material you cover is amazing, and perfect to get people up on their feet. I would love to come and see you again. Do you have any future Friday nights lined up in Cardiff?

I just wanted to thank you for giving us a brilliant night on the 4th December.

Everyone had a brilliant time... my feet were killing me from dancing!

Thank you so much.

We'll see you on Boxing Night!

Alison & Simon - Wedding:– Novatel, Cardiff – Sat 4th December 2010

 

Dear Alun and band members,

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for playing at our wedding. You were amazing!! All our guests keep saying ‘where did you find them?’ and the compliments on your playing and singing have been coming thick and fast!

So many of our guests did not leave the dance floor!

It was great how you also read out our special requests for individuals during your sets – a really nice touch.

We can’t thank you all enough & look forward to hearing more of you at some of your appearances in Cardiff in the future.

Best wishes,

Kate & Alex. - Wedding:- Fonmon Castle 14th August 2010

 

Dear Alun

Thank you so much to you and the other members of the band for making sure that everyone at our wedding party evening reception had a great time.  You were all fantastic and it was great to see so many people up dancing and having a good time.  Please pass on our thanks to the others.  I think that my feet have just about recovered from all the dancing!

If you would like me to provide a testimonial/similar for your website, I am more than happy to do so.  We will be sure to catch up with you at one of your gigs soon so please keep us posted on where you are going to be performing.

Many thanks once again and hope to see you soon.


Katherine and Wayne Morris - Wedding: - St David’s Hotel 4th September 2009

 

Alun,

Back from honeymoon. Had the most amazing time. Just wanted to say a big, big thank you for playing at the wedding. We had a fantastic time and you guys were great. I hope the rabble didn’t cause you too much trouble after we left. They are all wannabe singers! “You’re the Voice” was fantastic as usual and is now firmly Ruth and mine’s favourite song. Say a big thank you to all the boys.

Regards

Dave Loosemoore

 

Hi Alun

How are you?

Having left for our honeymoon the day after the wedding and only getting back late last Sunday night I haven’t had the chance to say a big thank you for helping make our wedding day the most special day ever!

Everybody I’ve seen or spoken to has commented on how good you guys were and how they felt like they danced all night. I certainly felt like that! We had such a fantastic evening and your music was definitely a large part of that. Thank you very much!!!! It couldn’t have gone better. I know it sounds corny but my dreams did come true that day and we had such a brilliant time. The music was spot on! Thank you again!

Will definitely be recommending your band to future brides and grooms!!!

Thanks Alun.

Best wishes

Lucy Stares – Crawley Cottage, Nicholaston  Sat 8th September 2007

 

 

Alun,

Just to say a huge thank you for playing at our wedding at Craig-Y-Nos Castle last Saturday. You were absolutely brilliant and we’ll make sure we recommend you to as many people as we know.

Hopefully we’ll catch up with you again when we’re back from honeymoon.

Thank you again.

Nicola & Alun Watkins - Craig-y-Nos Castle, Saturday 9th September 2006

 

Dear Alun,

We would like to say a big Thank You for your amazing performance at our wedding reception in Fonmon Castle on Saturday 16th July 2005. You surpassed all our expectations even though we had already seen you perform and knew what you could do!

We are getting rave reviews from guests of all ages, from little bridesmaids of 6 years old, friends in their twenties & thirties, parents, family and friends in their 40s & 50s and even grandparents in their 80s & 90s. You were extremely professional and carried off every song as if they were your own. The DJ set was also excellent.

We cannot thank you enough for helping make our day very special. We shall definitely be recommending you to anyone who will listen to us.

Many Thanks & Best Wishes,

Kirsty & Wilf How - Fonmon Castle on Saturday 16th July 2005

 

 

 

Morning Alun

Thank you so much for making our wedding day so special.  Everybody has commented on how fantastic you guys all were.

Thank you for remembering what all the guys wanted to hear they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.  The ones that do not ever dance, we have photographic proof that they actually can now. (That is if you call the funky chicken and the jitterbug dancing!!)

Could I have a postal address to send a thank you card to?

I have enclosed a little photo of Rog and I on the day which I thought would be nice to add to your portfolio!!!

 

Thanks again

Nicky Berman

 

Alun,

Thank you so much for the wonderful performance that you and the guys put on for our wedding on the 19th December 2004. Everyone, from all age groups, were very impressed by the quality of playing and the excellent across the board music that you provided. Even allowing a little 'Garry Oke' at the end. It was so nice to deal with highly professional and friendly people; we did not have to worry about a thing. Thank you also for making life so easy for us particularly as we organised the wedding from so far away (Israel/Palestine).

 

Our sincere thanks and if we can be of service in providing references we
would be delighted to do so.

 

Happy New Year to you and the guys.

Kind regards

Tim and Lucy Henry -  Fonmon Castle 19th December 2004
